Cheer on the Jumbo Shrimp at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville

Cheer on the Jumbo Shrimp at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville

Did you know that the history of baseball in Jacksonville dates back to the late 1800s?

The first ever Major League spring training took place at the city's JP Small Field in 1888. It's where fans gathered to watch the Philadelphia Athletics, Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Yankees, and Pittsburgh Pirates. 

Today, residents can head to the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville to watch as the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp takes on their opponents.

Stadium Information

When the stadium opened in 2003, it became the first completed project of the Better Jacksonville Plan. It sits on just over nine acres and features an old-fashioned design, vivid sightlines, and a unique nine-foot high mound for seating at the left corner. 

Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp

The Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp is a minor league affiliate of the Miami Marlins. Originally known as the Suns, the team used to be an affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, and it's where Alex Rodriguez and Brett Bone played before reaching the Major Leagues. The name change took place in 2016, and during the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp's inaugural season, the team won the South Division. 

Skybox 

If you and your friends would like to enjoy the game in style, the Skybox is available for nightly rental. The price includes twenty game tickets, complimentary programs, and delicious menus ranging from traditional ballpark fare to elegant restaurant-style food. 

Rookie Card

The stadium features works of art including Rookie Card. Created by Barbara Grygutis, this sculpture stands 25-feet high and evokes a trade card silhouette of a baseball player. 

Tickets start at five dollars, and after every Friday night home game, fireworks light up the darkened sky.

The Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville is less than twenty minutes from Mirador & Stovall at River City. If you are searching for a place to call home, please contact our leasing staff. They would love to show you around our vibrant community.
